Power Factors LLC, an independent software and services provider for renewable energy, has formed a new partnership with Nor-Cal Controls.
The partnership provides owners, developers and EPCs with end-to-end SCADA and technical asset management solutions for solar and storage, de-risking plant commissioning while providing open-architecture hardware and software.
Nor-Cal’s comprehensive engineering services include full monitoring and power plant control systems, as well as on-site commissioning services and training support. Their engineers design DAS, SCADA and MET stations, as well as source, configure and commission systems that integrate with Power Factors’ cloud-based technical asset management software platform.
Power Factors’ Drive platform gives owners and operators a shared system for monitoring asset performance data, providing comprehensive visibility and analysis and improved operational performance.
Dave Roberts, senior vice president of Power Factors, says, “Partnering with Nor-Cal provides our customers an open architecture combined with commercial off-the-shelf hardware, reducing project costs, accelerating commissioning of assets and increasing data transparency and availability. Joining Nor-Cal’s solution with the Drive platform elevates the users’ ability to interact, engage and derive value from high-quality data.”
